Physics/Electrical Engineering - Bachelor of Science (B.S.)
Students earning a dual degree in physics and electrical engineering combine the research skills and fundamental knowledge of a physics major with the design and application skills of an electrical engineer. Students earning these degrees will be extraordinarily well prepared for jobs in engineering, including research and development jobs. Engineers with a physics background are more flexible than those with only an engineering background, they understand more aspects of a problem, they contribute more broadly, and they can shift from one project to another with a shorter learning curve. Unsurprisingly, this provides great benefits in job security and career advancement.
